This is silly. Of all the examples to give, Chelsea were very patient with

Torres despite him coming down with the football equivalent of Steve Blass disease the minute he came over from 'pool. Main reason: he was obviously trying so very very hard.

He was given a very long time to turn it around. It didn't happen, so we gave him the transfer he wanted, and I believe when he has been back (maybe only once?) he was warmly received at the Bridge.

now we aren't too keen on Alvaro Morata for the exact opposite reason: he doesn't seem like he's interested in much besides the grave injustices he perceives he is receiving from referees and EPL central defenders, and he can't be bothered to keep himself onside. Not trying very hard at all. This is why Giroud, with similarly paltry goalscoring stats, is generally loved.

  He'd give them a lot of good flexibility. -- NaturalMysticHoo 12/31/2018 12:54PM
  Would they be moving Willian in that scenario? -- NaturalMysticHoo 01/02/2019 2:04PM
  Agree with that. I think they will clean house -- VignetteHoo 01/02/2019 12:35PM
